The jambalay was good, although not as spicy as the woman taking orders. Definitely like this place as an alternative to the convention center icky "food." Inexpensive, too.
Ate at the bar, and had no problems drinking only (much needed) water. Heard the barkeep and one of his friends on my side discussing local fishing areas, limits, and plans… Well, discussing in the sense that the one not working was going fishing and the barkeep was, um, displeased. I have no idea if this is a "local's" place, particularly because it's close to the convention center, but it feels nice and relaxed. Great when you're working a booth on the center's floor.
Remember to brush your teeth before talking to people, though… Good flavors don't always translate into good breath.
